There are a lot of machine shops in Belize because of lack of access to parts. Most parts have to be shipped from the US through Mexico and take forever. The Mennonites have the auto industry on lock there, there is a community called Spanish Lookout that has a ton of machine/part/tire shops.

I miss Belize :(

that's awesome

it also does not even look like that good or interesting a dish considering the number of ingredients and level of effort? mushrooms was a good start, but then a second pot for some random ham and then it gets put on the whitest possible bread for some reason?

seriously! and adding a kraft single and pepper on top like it's some kind of rare delicacy

also i left academia behind and i'm wandering around / living in china now so if y'all have any questions just ask

how do actual chinese people feel about liziqi? i've read a little bit of stuff that suggest she is somehow propaganda or something but i went to school in america so i was taught next to nothing about china and have no idea if that criticism is remotely valid or even coming from a real person

when i was a kid we took a train from austin to tucson and I have so many good memories. the observation car was the dopest poo poo i've ever seen and if we didn't spend 3457389 hours stopped in san antonio for no discernable reason i'd have probably become a lifelong train rider

appreciate the sentiment but there is no way i'll be able to afford anything like this ever

I was hoping one day to spend 4k on an old toyota mr2 as a midlife crisis thing but looks like by the time i've paid off post-marriage debt combined with how poo poo I am with money it'll be able age 61 when I can consider upgrading my 2001 honda fit let alone spending money making my real life enjoyable

toyota mr2 is my dream midlife crisis car too but regular car reviews made me fear them a little bit because of that snap oversteer

looking for a solid point and shoot to take biking/hiking

was looking at the olympus tg-6 but a couple reviews knocked it down a bit due to the sensor size

any recommendations?

i have a Pentax k50 and it is really great. plus the lenses are dirt cheap because they have been doing the same lens attachment type for like seventy years

Found out half my direct reports took that time to accept job offers and that my boss is ""retiring"" in 2 weeks.

Should have just stayed away

my boss left last month and my company is so huge and old that they have completely lost track of my team since we're all wfh, and the stakes have never been lower. it owns.

i have a kinda long lens but the sensor would need to be open for too long to get that kinda definition on something so teensy, but i'm a scrub tier photographer so maybe i'm just not doing the right stuff

you just need a fast shutter speed like 1/1000 or 1/500 to freeze the motion. low f-stop like 2.8 for the pretty background blur

hummingbirds are more like 1/2500 i think and with my lens at 1/2500 and a not-that-noisy ISO my pictures are so fucken dark that i am obliged to hide them from Anish Kapoor
